Brooks Brothers Spring 2012

Hello-Hello, happy middle of the week.

It’s the time of year where one holds fast to the knowledge that even if we see more snow, spring isn’t *that* far away. Naturally yours truly begins to think about spring fashions at this point,we thought it would be fun to take a peek at some of the offerings this season.

Brooks Brothers continues to offer its updated take on classic pieces.

A number of styles were very attractive.

Although the shorter, more cropped fit on sweaters has yet to resonate here at the Prepatorium, other items hold promise.

The retailer’s Black Fleece collection features a number of pieces we liked.

There seems to be a lot of green in fashion palettes this spring.

The offerings in the Boy’s department look solid.

These argyle sweaters will certainly work for the growing number of women who buy Boy’s XL sweaters.

Accessories include new bags as well, some evocative of a man’s repp tie.

There are also new totes, including madras and Liberty of London prints, the Liberty bags are reversible.

The Liberty prints can also be found on women’s espadrilles.

Over at Milly the patterns are equally fresh and vibrant, especially for the spring Girl’s collection.

The turquoise, navy and salmon is an appealing color combination.

The spring Sperry Top-siders that Michelle Smith designed are in stock, the navy Links print is probably my favorite.

These are available for both big and little misses.

It’s nice we have bright and bouncy images like these, here is the forecast for tomorrow night:

(You will hear no complaints from these quarters, it has been an exceptionally mild winter.)

Brooks Brothers Spring 2012 & Yo’ – The Princess Raps

Hello-Hello, and happy Friday!

We are *very* brief today, with a quick look at some of the pieces in Brooks Brothers‘ spring women’s collection.

We saw lots to like, especially a color palette in navy, turquoise or aqua, green and white.

Brooks has put the catalog online if you enjoy viewing things that way.

The catalog is replete with nautical imagery.

A few more styles.

We like almost all of the pieces in these next three looks (we’re concerned the skirt on the far left may not be as flattering as one would hope for those above Size 6 or 8), especially the dress on the far right.

We hope to see some of these in person very shortly.

We leave you with hopes this next item will put a smile on your face, I hadn’t even heard of it until yesterday when The Consort played it for me. It’s a rap song that we both like. Really, it’s true. Can’t you see the two of us flashing the “P” (for Princess, hello!) and dancing around the Prepatorium? “Cuz it’s the Plaid Rap yo, in case you didn’t know.”

You may listen to the Plaid Rap in its entirety here.

Have a great weekend, we’re back on Monday with a *very* exciting giveaway.
